Seattle, WA -- In 36 hours, donations made via mobile phones for Haiti Earthquake Relief have surpassed $7 million across all the short codes managed by the Mobile Giving Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping other non-profits raise funds through mobile. This amount represents a mobile-giving record for funds raised for a single cause. But there is a long way to go.

As more organizations support relief efforts in Haiti, additional short codes are available for making monetary donations to help those affected by the recent earthquake.

By texting a keyword to a designated short code via a mobile phone, a micro-donation of $5 or $10 can be made to aid the millions of people affected by this tragedy. 100% of your donation goes to the recipient charity, and the donation appears as a charge on your carrier bill, standard rates may apply.
